  • ANNOUNCEMENT: Premium Catalog 1* Heroes

    Hi all,

    We've been looking ahead and have found that our current 6-month retention policy for our heroes in the Premium Catalog is going to rapidly cause us to have a very poor and limited selection of 1* heroes available. Before we get to that point, we are making changes, effective immediately, to this retention policy. Going forward, you can expect the following:
    • 2* and 3* Heroes will continue to remain in the Premium Catalog for approximately 6 months, after which time they will be removed.
    • 1* Heroes will remain in the Premium Catalog until such time as a new 1* Hero is released into the catalog to replace it, to ensure there is a reasonable variety of 1* heroes available at all times.
    We have already updated our Premium Catalog spreadsheet to reflect the new estimated dates of removal for heroes. Please note, however, that this is subject to change based on release schedules. Any alterations to our releases may necessitate altering the removal date for the 1* heroes.

      Just one is affected by this. The Tevinter Banner will still be leaving on 12/28. The Templar Banner however will be hanging around a bit longer. The Ferelden Banner will end up with only about a 3 week delay on being pulled out - but that one only was just released.

        Unless you cough up a 1* with awesome intricate armour. And shield too. I’m a sucker for those

          So what are the 1* Heroes currently in the Premium Catalog? Any URL to consult it? Hodacodex still includes Rhys, but I'm not sure if that's correct..

            With the excuse of the 35% Off I bought quite some pack the 1st-7th Dec week, this are the following heroes I got:
            1*: Ferelden, Tevinter and Templar Banner; Shianni, Kitty, Wisps, Lurker, Hakkonite Spellbinder
            2*: Avernus, Beast of Tellari Swamps, Carver Hawke, Bethany Hawke, Red Lyrium Bartrand
            3*: Xenon the Antiquarian, King Calenhad, Inquisitor Ameridan, The Elder One

            The site also says that there is Archon Radonis and Invisible Nug, which I already have since a while, so I dont know myself if they still are there, fact is that with this champion pool, I started getting dupes, so I assume it's the complete, or almost complete roster avaiable. I got tricked aswell and I was looking for the Great Dragon/Lady Seeker Cassandra, most likely they are no longer in here, but this looks OT

              Thanks for the info! Wow, you had a ton of gems...

              About dupes, 1* heroes are in separate queues than 2*/3*, so you can get 1* dupes while missing some 2*/3*. I’m certain that Great Dragon is still there, and probably Cassandra also is

                Copypasting:

                No-Duplicate Rule:
                Hero drops from Packs are subject to a "No-Duplicate Rule" which prioritizes heroes that the player has not yet acquired by any means, giving the best chances for new heroes with each purchase. While this reduces the chance of duplicates, it is always still possible to receive a duplicate Hero in a pack. Keep in mind that the No-Duplicate Rule is applied per rarity and star-rating, so you may acquire all of the One Star Legendary Heroes in a pack, for example, and begin seeing duplicate One Star Legendary heroes despite having not yet acquired all Two and Three Star Legendary heroes.

                  I was actually thinking the same and, of course, before investing such a huge amount of gems I carefully planned it. Fun fact is that after obtaining all the one star heroes I obtained all the 2* heroes I listed above. Bought one normal Champion Pack and got another 2* hero (Featured one), which is another lucky coincidence.
                  Pro to your thesis is the fact that Beast of the Tellari Swamps is still in there and it was released with the Great Dragon.

                  I know it's Off topic but can Lyeshal confirm the presence of Lady Seeker Cassandra and Great Dragon in the Champion packs?

                      This was a logical step to take. Also, for those asking about the premium catalog, here it is:

                        I can assure you that Archon Radonis and Invisible Nug are still in the pack. Even with increased odds on black faction I still pull out countless dupes of nugs and others instead of Kitty dupes!

                          I got Archon Radonis and Great Dragon from GCP last week so I believe both are still very much in the Premium Catalog.

                            I got 2 Hakkonite Spellbinders last week. One from GCP, another from CP. Both packs didn't have featured hero. I still don't understand how this works. Was Hakkonite Spellbinder in the Premium Catalog last week? I don't see him on current list.

                              Last week Featured Heroes were Red Lyrium Bartrand and The Elder One, since they both are Multistar Heroes the main cause is that first of all the Hakkonite Spellbinder was the last hero missing in the catalogue and that at that point, you had the whole 1* Hero catalogue already, then you got a dupe of the Hakkonite Spellbinder.

                              EDIT: The dupe comes from the fact that, as another user stated above by copypasting what Lyeshal said, that 1* Heroes are on a different champion pool in the CP/GCP, which means that even if you do not have all the 2*/3* Heroes, that are in the same Champion pool, you still have chances to get a 1* Dupe, which is, obviously, most common into this packs.

                              I hope I've been clear.

                              What should I do if I see objectionable material on the forums?
                              It is important that members recognize the real-time nature of this forum: the moderators cannot always monitor the contents of posted messages, and as such depend upon you to inform them when participants or their messages are violating our policy as stated here. You must also recognize that they cannot respond immediately to such notices and that some time may pass before any warranted action is taken.

                              To contact a moderator, please use the Flag Post function on the post represented by a flag:


                              What happens if I break the rules?
                              At best, your post will be edited by one of the moderators and you will be issued a warning. If the offense is more serious your post will be deleted. Posting "why was my post edited/deleted?" etc. will only make matters worse, so please don't. If a moderator has not sent you a message stating why, please send the Sr Moderator a message asking for a reason.

                              Should you have already been issued warnings and continue to break the rules, you will be issued an infraction - your posting privileges will be disabled for three days, but you will still be able to view the forums as a guest.

                              For persistent and deliberate rule-breakers your account will be "Banned". That means you are no longer welcome on these forums and/or games and your account will no longer function in them. If you re-register, your new account will be banned as well.

                              Posting Suggestions
                              In the attempt to create a compromise where everyone is happy, the following suggestions are also recommended:

                              1. Be civil and courteous. This forum is visited by people from all over the world, of different ages, genders, religions, and backgrounds, and are each entitled to their own opinion.
                              Also, see Flaming, Right to Privacy, and Hatred.

                              2. Make sure that your message topics fit the topic description of the forum in which you are posting. This is for your own benefit - for example, a question regarding a bug or problem should be posted in the Feedback section.

                              3. Use the search function before posting, particularly if the question is problem oriented. Most technical questions have been answered before, and solutions are freely available.

                              4. Make sure that you have followed #3 before posting

                              5. Read the sticky threads at the top of each forum - they are there for a reason, and generally contain information relevant to the forum.

                              6. Don't quote the entire message that you're responding to, only the pertinent passage. This makes it easier to read for other users.

                              7. If you find it easier to express yourself en français, auf Deutsch, en español, in Nederlands, in Italiano, or any other language, post in the International Discussion forum. Hopefully someone who speaks the same language as you will be able to assist you. All posts in other sections (non-International) of the forums must be in English, so please make use of Google Translate if you need assistance with translation. Posting in English will allow the widest range of people to assist you.

                              In addition to the Forum Rules, you are bound to the general EA Terms of Service both on these forums and in the game. Links to the TOS are as follows:
